Things We Learned From Tottenham's Convincing Victory Over Bournemouth on Sunday


Serge Aurier expressed delight after scoring his second English Premier League goal in Tottenham Hotspur's 4-1 win over AFC Bournemouth.

The Spurs boss confirmed a boost with the news that Toby Alderweireld has stepped-up his recovery from a hamstring injury by taking part in full training this week.

"Maybe they [Juventus] haven't won a Champions League in a while either", Vertonghen is quoted as saying.

Aurier was suspended against Juve, while Ben Davies was preferred over Rose at left-back.

Harry Kane is sure to start up front, while Hugo Lloris will play in goal.

The match kicks off at 16:00 GMT on Sunday, with live television coverage in the United Kingdom provided by Sky Sports.

Following his side's defeat at the hands of Valencia, which nearly certainly eliminates them from Champions League play next season, the manager spoke about Juventus' elimination of Tottenham this week.

The Cherries haven't scored in any of their last four Premier League meetings with Spurs, with Matt Ritchie's strike 49 seconds into their first ever such meeting with them remaining their only goal in this fixture.

Tottenham are unbeaten in their six Premier League games and have won their last three top-flight games to hoist themselves above Chelsea FC.

As stated previously, Spurs are not wholly reliant on Kane to power them to glory, and that was proved no more so than on Sunday afternoon; as with the Englishman off the pitch, Son was on hand to produce a scintillating display.

But, ahead of the south coast clash, many had written the north Londoners off; claiming being dumped out of the Champions League would be too much of a mentally scarring scenario to overcome.
